Mississippi Fugitive Nabbed in St. Louis

ST. LOUIS (KMOX/AP) – A Tennessee man wanted for murder in Mississippi is arrested in St. Louis.

U.S. marshals reportedly took 22-year-old Rico Fleming into custody on Tuesday without a fight.

Marshall County Mississippi sheriff’s deputies say Fleming was at the home of a cousin.

Fleming waived extradition, Wednesday, and was transported to Mississippi.

He’s one of three people charged in the Christmas Day shooting of a 16-year-old girl.
